No, Internet2 never had anything to do with Registry Services.  It is 
simply a private backbone.  Early on (2001ish) for ipv6 it kind of acted 
as an LIR because of the very early IPv6 policies, these days there is a 
push for participants to get their IPv6 assignments or allocations 
directly from ARIN.
